It takes awhile to brew, but then, all vacuum pots have this problem
This is a fine little machine, though it isn't as pretty as many of the others I've seen. Bodum tends to be simple and modern, not ornate. The spirit lamp is silly, too, but it works. I haven't used other vacuum pots so I can't speak on comparison. I can say, though, that I've enjoyed this pot a great deal.
